Visualizing Palestine: Where The Law Stands On The Wall

In June 2002, the Israeli cabinet approved the construction of a “continuous fence” in the West Bank. In July 2004, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) declared this barrier illegal, choosing to refer to it as a “wall”.

Their decision included three specific reasons for the wall’s illegality:
1) It constitutes de facto annexation
2) It is not justified on security grounds
3) It violates human rights law

Yet today the Israeli government continues to build the wall.
